Tell me about your qualifications.
My qualifications (ALAM, ANEA, NLP) bring a lifetime’s experience of voice training, having trained through the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art and the New Era Academy,
What kind of experience do you have?
I have taught literally thousands of people in over 55 years of teaching experience. These people are from all walks of life and all ages. My own career started by training with two or three of the countries top elocution and public speaking teachers and gaining teaching qualifications through the New Era Academy and the London Academy of Music and Drama. In the course of my career I have dealt successfully with a wide range of vocal issues that in one way or the other are the cause of a lack of confidence in many people. I have a deep passion for my work, and a life long belief in people and their right to speak confidently and express themselves in their daily life and business. My approach is friendly, effective and always fun, and I try to make the art of learning to speak confidently a joyful process. My approach has proved very popular with children and adults, professionals and those simply seeking help in their personal life.
